84% Support the Right of Citizenship to
Children of Bahraini Women

A survey conducted by a national campaign showed that 84% of the 965 participants support the right of Bahraini women extending their citizenship to their children, regardless of their husband’s nationality. 81% of the participants believed that amending the nationality law is a priority. The Coordinator of the Campaign, Dr. Wajeha Al Baharna said that these results reveal that the society is fully aware of the problem. She called upon the Government to review the case and take a decision to stop the suffering of Bahraini women married to non-Bahrainis.
